[Curriculum Vitae]

London, UK 🌍

Hi! I’m a senior M.Eng. student in Aeronautical Engineering at Imperial College London. My interests span Robotics, Deep Learning and Optimal Control, with the goal of developing robust autonomous systems capable of improving human lives.

I generally prefer modular, model-based approaches that leverage advances in learning to improve with experience, over methods that rely on learning in an end-to-end fashion. I aim to validate my systems on physical hardware (reality is the best benchmark!), ideally on as an unstructured environment as possible.

I am currently applying for doctoral programs, starting Fall 2023!
